Mark Wahlstrom, President of Wahlstrom and Associates of Scottsdale, AZ and the host of The Settlement Channel was recently featured on KFNN, 1510 in Phoenix, Arizona for a full hour on Talk Real Estate. This syndicated daily real estate show is hosted by Drew Grunwald of The Red Door Group and Doug Blackwell of 1031 Exchange Partners, and the four part hour long discussion centered on the use of structured sale annuities in deferring capital gains on appreciated real estate.
Wahlstrom, who has been mentioned in Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Vacation Homes, The Robb Report and The National Law Journal as an expert on structured settlements and structured sales, had an interesting hour long conversation with two leading real estate and 1031 exchanges experts, and talked about where structured sales, or installment sales of real estate secured with annuities fits into the the real estate investors plans. What makes this of particular interest to settlement professionals is the opportunity to have exchange professionals and real estate professionals give their views and questions on this new capital gains deferral tool.
